5 Best Free VPN For UAE

The UAE isn't an easy place to visit if you like to be connected to the Web. The country has tons of content filters, restricting tons of different sites on the Internet. It can be extremely difficult to view popular social media sites, watch media, and even play games while in the UAE. Luckily, there's an easy way around that, and that's to use a virtual private network.

What VPNs are available for the iPhone, though? And are there choices out there that you can use for free? The answer is yes to both of those questions. Now follow along with us below, and we'll show you five of our favorite choices.


First up, we're looking at a free virtual private network called CyberGhost. CyberGhost has been around for a long time, and is actually trusted by over 15 million people. CyberGhost is free to use; however, they do have subscription tiers as well. CyberGhost is really great about keeping your data well protected -- they don't sell it to third parties or advertisers like some do.

CyberGhost has a ton of awesome features, including Wi-Fi protection, friendly customer support, DNS and IPv6 leak protection, an automatic kill switch, etc.

Like we already mentioned, CyberGhost is free to use, but if you want to jump to a paid-for tier, CyberGhost does offer 7-day free trials for those.

Tunnelbear VPN

Tunnelbear VPN is up second on our countdown, and works really well for the laymen. All you have to do to use Tunnelbear VPN is to create a free account, and then you will immediately get access to 500MB of free VPN data per month. While that can be quite low, there are different things you can do to increase your data allotment -- referring friends to Tunnelbear is one of those things.

Want to pay for more data? You also have the option of paying for a Tunnelbear subscription tier, but only if you want. For the most part, Tunnelbear can stay free. It's a premium VPN, as you should keep your current, quick Internet speeds. You stay well protected with a 256-bit AES encryption key, too.

Concerned about your privacy? Heard a little too much about VPNs stealing and selling your data? Look no further than what StrongVPN offers then. Made with top tier security in mind, StrongVPN will keep you extremely secure while online. With 2048-bit encryption, and a 256-bit AES encryption key on top of that, StrongVPN is virtually unhackable. Not only that, but like a couple of the others, StrongVPN doesn't sell your data to third parties.

StrongVPN actually has servers all over the world.  That said, you will have plenty of options for spoofing your location to access geo-blocked content.

Next up is VyprVPN. This is one of our favorite virtual private networks, making it easy to access content blocked by the UAE. VyprVPN is actually quite similar to many of the other virtual private networks out there, but there's at least one feature that keeps it pretty unique -- its service operates entirely without third-parties. Some VPNs will take your data and sell it, but not VyprVPN.

VyprVPN keeps your data completely private, not even allowing your ISP or governments to see what you're doing on the Web -- all they can see is that you have encrypted data coming through. VyprVPN keeps your Internet running fast as well -- you shouldn't experience a huge slowdown like many VPNs do.

Secure VPN

And finally, we have Secure VPN. This operates like many of the others on our countdown, but they make sure that they put security and ease of use first. And Secure VPN really is easy to use -- just sign up for your free account, and once you do, all you have to do to connect up to their servers is press a button within the app. It's supposed to be a one-click sign on.

This one has some really good protection as well. It has the encryption that you would expect out of it -- 256-bit AES encryption. However, Secure VPN has a bunch of other awesome features that keep you well protected online. There's an automatic kill switch, DNS protection, and so much more. Grab it for yourself at the link below.

As you can see, there are a lot of great VPNs that you can choose from. Most of these will accomplish the same means that you're after, but we think StrongVPN is one of the best, offering the toughest security.
